According to page 4-4 (Chapter 4, page 4) of this motherboard's manual (or technically page 72 in the PDF document), it can be done like this:
  1. Put the BIOS file onto a USB flash drive
  2. Reboot
  3. Press Alt+F2 during the POST (the Power-On Self Tests) to launch the ASUS EZ Flash 2 utility
  4. Use Tab to cycle through drives to find and select the USB flash drive
  5. Press Enter once it's clear that the BIOS file was found

This is basically it! There are two other methods, but I feel that this is absolutely the easiest and best way.

Doesn't really have to be an external storage device. Just place the .rom file onto the root C:\\ directory. Run ASUS EZ and cross your fingers (figuratively) for the power not to be cut off.

I would never flash with any sort of utility. Do it the man's way in DOS. You can prepare any bootable medium, like flash drive, cd rom, whatever. Then when you make it to the command prompt you would type something like AFUDOS biosname.rom or whatever the flashing utility is called would take the place of AFUDOS.

MSI has a good guide here. Plus once you get a bootable flash drive setup, you can run memtest from it, or hard drive utilities or whatever.

Their EZ Flash utility is accessed via the BIOS. It's accessed before Windows is loaded. There's nothing wrong with it. Using it means that you don't have to go and make your USB flash drive bootable: you just stick the file on there, reboot, press Alt+F2 during the POST, and do it!

It's not a windows-based piece of software, it's located in the BIOS. Making a bootable drive is a hassle for a quick flash, and the BIOS takes care of it quite well. I don't see why he shouldn't use it.
Of course I would NEVER recommend flashing from inside the OS.
